    The 2013 Ashes

    Poms to bat first at Trent Bridge.

    First ball of the day is a wide.

      I dunno. For me The Ashes have lost the edge. High tech tv, fancy dan bats, and sunglasses from outer space.

      Denis Lilley and Thommo (who played 9 for years before taking up cricket) would be turning in their graves had they infacta been dead. They'd be ashamed to be involved in this pure commercial farce.

      Irish, Welsh and Scots sparcely represented - a disgraceful call by the coach, and blatantly pro Brit. I'm so incensed and disenfranchised that I'm considering dusting off my groin protector (it's yellow by now), putting "Skippy The Bush Kangaroo" on repeat on the stereo and tearing into a couple of cases of Fosters.

      Call me a dishonest fan if you wish, I don't care.

        Ball is moving around all over the shop with the heavy cloud cover necessitating the lights being on. However, the Aussie bowlers look very nervous and are tending to bowl a bit too short to exploit conditions. Cook has taken a bit of a gamble batting first IMHO because the ball often does a bit under the cloud at Trent Bridge, however if they can get through the first 25 overs without too many problems the batters could fill their boots. Cook gone, 27-1, soft dismissal. That should help the Aussies relax.

                        The Irish cricketers qualified for the World cup yesterday if I'm right. Happy days.

                        If hope Wales put a team together for the next one. The England and Wales Cricket board using only "England" is slightly annoying.
                        Back in 2002 Wales beat England. It was by around 9 wickets if I remeber.
                        The axe that cuts the tree can easily forget, but the tree thats been cut will not forget.

                          They did, Netherlands managed a draw by virtue of a 6 off the last ball but it was enough for Ireland to qualify

                            Especially when they have been captained in test or ODI cricket by a Scotsman, Mike Denness, a Welshman Tony Lewis and an Irishman Eoin Morgan.
